Agnus,

Gotcha. That does sound like extreme circumstances to have to quilt a quilt :-).  Me, I couldn't stand the heat. That would be enough to put me out of the running. I love it cold. And then not to be able to see. Truly it has to be very frustrating to not be able to see where you're quilting. I've had a few quilts (white on white) where trying to see the thread has caused me some really good mess ups.  That B&W must really be bad.  Hang in there!

Give me the cold any day. I dare not set the black & white quilt aside or it will never get done but life has now also forced me to take a break.  So who knows how long it might be before I get back to it. But I will prove I am not a quitter though it may be some time before it's done.

Your DWR is gorgeous.  You did a great job on a tough pattern.   All of your quilts are very pretty.

Jacy:

Jacy, I really like your houses quilt!  There are so many elements there I could have used in my cottage garden row quilt had I seen this earlier.

Your quilts are beautiful, we did the stitcher's garden at our LQS last year, really learned alot. the Stitcher's garden II is now out and that is what we are working on at our LQS. Should have all the blocks done in October. Love you DWR, hopefully one day I will be brave enough to give that one a try.

stitcher's garden

 

Ally, I did the Stitcher's Garden quilt, too. It was a lot of fun and I also learned a lot about my machine and stitches and feet. It got pretty pricey after a while because I wanted all the feet that was promoted. lol. I haven't got it all together yet, but that will be my winter project, I think. The lady that taught our class used to be a Viking educator, who traveled all over the world teaching people about Vikings. She was an excellent teacher.

This was a BOM called Stitcher's Garden

 

Annie, I love your Stitchers Garden. I hope to finish mine this winter. I have all the blocks done, I just need to set them together. Wasn't it a fun quilt to do?  We used Misty Fuse on our fusable applique. If you've never used this product you should try it. It is so soft and does not leave the finished product stiff at all. I used to use Steam a Seam but I will never use anything but misy fuse from now on.

Elaine, Thanks for the suggestion. One of my complaints about this is the stiffness. I tried to cut out as many centers of the steam a seam pieces as I could. It it was still siff. I will try misty fuse. I would love to see a pictures of yours. I have seen it with  pastels and mine is made using batiks. I think I like the pastel fabric better, though. What fabric are you using?

Annie, the colors we used were more in the pastel colors. I will post a picture when I ever get the thing put together.

Angele:

This is very pretty Gini. What size is it?  I really like the fancy blue/green batik border you have.  What did you use to cut it? A stencil or a precision die cut?  As always, it is perfect with those appliqués around the nine patch. 

angele, thank you very much.   i think it is 21 inches square,   it is all hand done, you silly, i save all my money for fabric.   i tore off some freezer paper and played with the design until i was happy with it, made a template out of the freezer paper and drew it on with a pencil.
